It's Christmas -12 Kits of Occasions style

I know I say this every month... but can you believe how quickly November came, and went!!??

That's okay ... it's 12 Kits of Occasions time again - always something wonderful to celebrate at the end of each month!

Jessica Davis, of The Paper Parade, is playing Santa this time - a Christmas Kit!  oh, did I need it - I have SO many to make, and very little time to get them done!  All of the supplies are listed at the 12 Kits home page, if you'd like to know what Jessica used to assemble her kit.  Here is a little peek, compliments of Lindsey:


Grab a cuppa something wonderful, turn up those Christmas tunes, and let's get this party started, Christmas-style:

and a little sentiment of my own on the inside:
 


 
 
Because these guys are SO adorable, they deserve a close-up!
 
 
One more!  a little Winter birthday card - hope
I get to hand-deliver this one!
Is there anything more adorable than that
little corduroy button?
Okay, maybe the felt snowflakes? 
 


That's it for me ... oh my friends at 12 Kits have LOTS of Christmas-y goodness for us... let's go, don the sleigh bells!

Thanks, Jess, for the sweetest little Christmas-gift-of-a-Kit!

Oh Michele, these are ALL adorable, and yes, that corduroy button and felt snowflakes are precious! LOVE all that red and baby boy blue and white and the warm woolly feel of the patterned papers - feels very festive indeed! I also love all your personal sentiments (they are my favourite!) And...ahem... have you gotten just a little fancy with all your photography?? Looks absolutely amazing! I can't believe Christmas is so close! As always, the tailor never has time to mend his own clothes...I only had time to make a few personal cards - the majority I have given to the school! Never mind, yours will be on its way soon... I actually sent you a card a couple of months ago, but wonder if it might have gotten lost in transit, or still on its way, via barge...;-) xx

Michele what an absolutely lovely collection of cards you made with this months kit. You never cease to amaze me at what you do with your cats little touches that I would've never thought to do, extra sentiments from the creative mind of yours and just overall amazing. Love them all. Well done! ❤️

Kim Heggins said...

as always...so many incredible and beautiful cards! I am in love with your sweet Yeti, so happy I still have him to play with. And your card with the window, just so adorable. Your sweet critter family decking out the Christmas tree is so pretty, love that pale blue tree.

I couldn't wait to see what you did with the plaids!! You never disappoint Michele, these are marvelous. I like the colored letters on your Yeti card. Those darling critters decorating the tree is such a sweet card. I'm swooning over your Deck the Halls card. The patterned snowflakes are amazing! Thanks for all of the inspiration!

I know right, I don't think November even made it to Australia.... These are all positively amazing Michele, you never cease to inspire and I am so glad that you are planning on hand delivering that 'button' card to me, it will be great to catch up for a coffee (wink)!

Marybeth said...

Oh gosh I fell in love with that red card as soon as I saw it and I love how you think! I love how you create your own perfect sentiments. That peace and joy card is as sweet as can be with all the little helpers . Your post sure made me smile.
Yes, where and when was it November !

Michelle said...

As always, a-mazing use of color, pattern,texture and detail on these SIX fabulous, fantastic cards! Love, LOVE the soft blues on the Peace & Joy card and the lovely embellishment/layering of the bright and beautiful red/aqua Deck the Halls (oh....perfection in every detail)!

Sharron said...

Amazing, Michele! You created such a wonderful collection of cards with Jessica's kit. I LOVE the red and the adorable little pup and kitty. Just wish now that I still had mine! The 'Deck the Halls' is stunning as well.. You must have enjoyed the plaid as much as I did and how fun that you used patterns on every design! The birthday card design is perfection-gotta love felt and corduroy!!!

Jeanne J. said...

Always lots of goodness here ! I knew you'd rock the yeti's ! I love the deck the halls with all the snowflakes and sequins.. and did you frost the letters? They look so cool! Smitten with the winter birthday too - the colorful stitches and playful bow with the felt snowflakes is stunning!

Cat Craig said...

Amazingly fabulous Michele. You really rocked the kit. I love the colors the cool toned cards and that blast of red amongst them. Such pretty eye candy.

Birgit said...

Oh Michele, where do I begin? Every card is just as darling as can be! The layered Yeti cards are so adorable and I love your clever, personalized sentiments. I keep thinking someday I'm going to try doing some on my own cards. Your Deck The Halls card is so striking and stunning!!! I love everything about it! You think of every little detail too, like the white gel pen accents. Don't think that they went un-noticed. ;0) Your coloring on your little kitty and puppy is perfection my friend and I love how it looks like they're in a little red barn. So stinkin' cute my friend! Every card is over the top adorable! I hope your december is filled with Joy!

I always love your 12 Kits posts, Michele! It's amazing that you can make cards in so many different styles! Love the red card with a dog & a cat. Just adding the thin snow line at the window is the perfect finishing touch. I love the felt snowflakes with the adorable corduroy button too! Hideko

Just catching up after my busy week. These cards came out AWESOME!!! How did this kit give you trouble? I cannot see it!! LOVE the snowflake card with the stitched paper and Your Yeti cards are ADORABLE!!! I think my favorite, though is the Deck the Halls with the fun snowflakes and the way you used the ribbon. FANTASTIC use of this kit!!
